In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention. This time we look at top Flickr photos, an Australian heat wave, Richard Misrach, focus stacking and Photo Raw 2019.2.

  • In Top 25 Photos on Flickr in 2018 From Around the World, F;ickr "curated a list of the most inspiring photos, which represent a global community of unique perspectives."
  • Alan Taylor presents 28 photos of A January Heat Wave in Australia. Just the ticket if you're in the Midwest today.
  • In The Aesthetic Sensibility of Richard Misrach's Documentary Photography, Rosie Flanagan writes, "Photographing sites like the polluted rivers of Mississippi known as Cancer Alley, mass animal graves in the Nevada Desert, desolate bomb test sites, the border between the U.S. and Mexico -- and the passages through the desert that people follow in an attempt to cross it, his work offers a unique insight into contemporary happenings."
  • Jeff Carlson explains how to do Focus Stacking in Photoshop. He follows Nick Page, who uses the technique in his landscape photographs, through one stacking project.
  • ON1 has released Photo Raw 2019.2 featuring a new AI quick mask tool, performance enhancements, support for new cameras and lenses plus bug fixes in the free update.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
